The narrator points out that the show is based on the concept of ancient India’s transformation into modern India. It also deals with the Hindu Pantheon and Indian history.

The acrobats were fantastic.

The acrobats were fantastic.

There is a cast of twenty six and over five hundred beautiful costumes. The costumes, like the dancers, are fantastic. The four acrobats are even more superb than the dancers and costumes. That’s really saying something.

About moirads

Multi-skilled, trained theologian (Christian), administrator and journalist, I conduct weddings, funerals and facilitate spiritual growth workshops. Theatre, music, dance and visual arts are my passions. I have been making my musical musings, theatre talks and dance dialogues public since February 1999 when I acquired access to the internet. Books are another passion, and I have a particular interest in South African ecology and history. I have been interested in first aid and health 'forever' because my mother was a highly qualified nurse and my father was a safety officer. I did a first aid course, a fire fighting course and then an advanced first aid course and I loved them. Basically, I write about what I do, where I go and things I love (or hate).
